The contest has ended. crippledogg won the free one-year PlayStation Plus code.

~~~

Happy 4th of July everyone!

As mostly everyone agrees, PS+ is a pretty amazing service right now. At E3 this year I snagged a free one-year PS+ code and I'm giving it away to the winner of this contest. Unlike the last one I held for free PSN games (congrats again to the winners MrHunt and number1laing), this competition will be a scavenger hunt.

Contest Rules! (Click to show)
1. This competition is open to any regular member of the PS3 sub-forum who has at least 500 total posts or has joined AVS as of July 4, 2011.

2. The contest begins at 6:00 PM PST (or 9:00 EST) on Sunday, July 8th. I will use this link as the official clock.

3. You goal is to find a specific post at this site, copy the text there and PM it to me. The first person to do so correctly will be the winner.

4. To find the correct post, you will need three numbers. You will receive these numbers as answers to three questions I will edit into the bottom of this post this Sunday.

5. The first number tells you which thread page in my profile to look through. To use it, go to my AVS profile page and click on "Threads Started". Then go to the page numbered the same as your first answer.

6. The second number tells you which actual thread to look through. There are up to eight shown on each page, so use your second answer to click on the correct thread.

7. The third number tells you the number of the post in the thread that has the correct message. Copy the message and PM it to me first to win the contest.

*** SAMPLE TEST ***

"How many PlayStation consoles have been released? The answer is 3.
"How many fingers does Kratos have on his left hand?" The answer is 5.
"The PS+ program has been available for how many years?" The answer is 2.

You would click on my profile, go to Threads Started, and then go to the 3rd thread page, click on the 5th thread, and PM the text of the 2nd post. Here is the correct post you would have sent me in this example, which is from the Final Fantasy Versus XIII‎ thread:

"I was always more interested in Final Fantasy Versus XIII than XIII. The dark tone/theme looks like a nice setting.
Can't wait to play as an emo Cloud "

Good luck!


PlayStation Quiz! (Click to show)
All three answers are numbers associated with the question. The first number tells you which thread page to click under the "Threads Created" link in my profile. The second number is the thread on that page you click on (1-8), and the third is the post number you quote and PM me. The winning post might be a post by anyone, not necessarily my mine.

Clue #1: The Bunker of Uncharted

Clue #2: A non-sports title from Visual Concepts

Clue #3: The third North American PS3 model, but not the model number itself

Los Angeles Lakers - 16 NBA Championships!

The questions will be easier this time around. It'll test your detective skills more than your hardcore PlayStation knowledge.

OK, I'll edit the first post in five minutes with the questions. It will be at the bottom.

*** IMPORTANT RULE UPDATE! ***

In the rules I mistakenly said you are looking for a post of mine to quote and win. That isn't true. It can be a post from anyone in the thread that you quote and PM me.

Winner winner, chicken dinner! The contest in over and the first person to have PM'd me the correct post is... crippldogg!

The answers are below. I didn't get any incorrect guesses so I guess the contest was definitely was easier than last time:

Clue #1: The Bunker of Uncharted.
Since that is chapter 18 in the game, the correct thread in my profile is on page 18.

Clue #2: A non-sports title from Visual Concepts.
On VC's wiki page, there is only a single non-sports PlayStation game that is the obvious numerical answer: One. The first thread of page 18 is the right link (God of War reviews and impressions).

Clue #3: The third North American PS3 model, but not the model number itself.
The first two NTSC PS3 models were the 20GB and 60GB launch machines. The first revision was the third release, an 80 GB model, so the 80th post of the thread by warcrow is the answer.
Quote:
Thanks for the kind words and glad you liked the write-up.

You're in for an awesome ride, it's well worth the wait. Really looking forward to everyone's opinions.

Congrats crippldogg! Your free one-year PlayStation Plus code will be PM'd to you sometime tonight (I left it at my mom's house on accident; she'll bring it by today.)

Thanks to all of you who entered. smile.gif
